MANILA, Oct. 02(APD) – A memorial Mass has been scheduled today for the late Mailyn Conde Sinambong in Stockholm, Sweden. The event was due to the coordination among the Philippine Embassy in Oslo and Filipino priests and Filipino community in Stockholm.

The Mass will be held at 7:00 P.M., Stockholm time at the Heliga Trefaldighets Catholic Church in Järfällavägen 159, 177 41 Järfälla, Sweden.
